We girls enjoyed the Spring Antiques Show this weekend!

Lovely ladies modeled and purchased beautiful vintage hats.
Vendors exhibited tantalizing displays of china, pottery, glass, linens, ephemera, jewelry, and more!
    We love to learn the history of vintage items from each other and share tips on care
          and restoration of the wonderful old antiques and collectibles we deal in.
         What fun we had telling stories, seeing old friends and making new ones! 

"I think I would not have so many bad-hair-days, if I did not try to wear so many hats!", I overheard someone say.

Remind you of playing in Grandma's jewelry box?

"I swan"

"Grandmothers are just antique little girls!"
                     And of course we bragged a little about our grandchildren, and some even visited!  
          Next day, we are all home resting , I hope!  It's a chilly, rainy day, so I made big pot of chili !
What a nice weekend!

From an old book, called Gaylord Hauser's Treasury of Secrets:
Instead of synthetic tranquilizers and dangerous sleeping tablets,try this century-old recipe.
Mix 1 ounce of dry peppermint leaves(nature's digestive),
1 tablespoon rosemary leaves(nature's tranquiler),
and 1 teaspoon sage leaves(nature's sleep producer).
Mix and keep in tightly closed jar. Use 1 heaping teaspoon of mixture to a cup of boiling water.
Let steep for one minute, strain, sweeten with honey, and sip!
Amazing tranquilizing effect-without a hangover.

Love, Linda

Linda - This is wonderful!! I love it! And you inspired me to retool my site. I'm on blogspsot too:
But, I don't quite know how to make my site look as good as this! I would LOVE to know how I can add all these photos - I can't figure it out - also - how do you get a following going? I'd love to pick your brain about this. FB me as a friend and let's talk!
